“A long time ago…”
yep, one more viclock.
This is gorgeous.
He moved out yesterday.
AU: Sherlock goes to Victor, from the ACD canon, after John gets married.
Just have this version of Hiddleston wear glasses and you’ve got my headcanon.
A small drawing. Young Holmes, Trevor…and the infamous bull terrier.
Thinking more on the “wedding” part of the equation:
Assuming we’re meant to take this literally and John gets married off to Mary Morstan, if they make Mary anywhere near as awesome as she is in the Guy Ritchie movies, I think I’d be okay with that.
I’d rather she wasn’t played by Amanda Abbington, though. Bit too realistic for me, I guess. Nothing against her personally.
Though if the writers want to introduce Victor Trevor, have Tom Hiddleston play him, and make him Sherlock’s lover alongside the John/Mary storyline, I certainly don’t have a problem with that.
Though the chances of that happening are quite unlikely.
Remove the goatee and you have my mental version of the modern-day Victor Trevor.
BBC Sherlock —> Sherlock calls on Victor Trevor (Tom Hiddleston) to befriend John during his three year absence, as Victor and him were once close friends in university.
(The character of Victor Trevor can be found in the short story The Adventures of the Gloria Scott by Conan Doyle)
It was three weeks after the fall, Sherlock had been monitoring John’s movements in his spare moments when he wasn’t chasing a lead on Moran’s whereabouts. He tried to act under the front that he was looking out for him, should Moriarty’s henchmen carry out their original deed after the suicide of their master. But even he knew why he watched.
John was sad, more, broken? No deeper, he was empty. Sherlock watched as he left their regular grocery store, his automatic movements and the resonting echoes of his war limp indicating the hollowness residing in him. He knew he had to do act, fast, John was rotting, all exitement and intrigue removed from his life, all drive and companionship gone, John would rot. He was strong, he would live and move on, but Sherlock wanted him to do more than exist, he was the conductor of light, and his symphony was far from over.
Before he knew what he was doing Sherlock was in Norfolk, he was standing in a familiar estate, the memories of his university days creating a nostalgic tightness in his chest. He knew this was what must happen, he was aware that there was one man at least, who could give John the companionship he needed, the conversation, someone who he would not associate with Sherlock. He rang the bell again forcefully, casting his discerning eyes over the property, noticing foot marks and misplaced stones that were no doubt significant in betraying the proprietors habits, staff and even scandals.
The door was pulled open by a butler with sleek black hair and and a lofty manner. Sherlocks forthcoming request, led him with the butler, into a room adjacent to the grand but tasteful lobby, the room was dark with a single window, an office of sorts with a heavy air of study and reverie. There was a man sitting in a chair at the far to the left of the door, he turned as Sherlock entered and raised his eyebrows slightly, first with surprise and then his face settled into a nonchalant coldness.
“Victor.” muttered Sherlock, “I have a favour.”
Glad to have found this .gifset again.
it’s probably a bad idea to draw a character you knew existed only a couple of days ago
edit: whoops sorry i forgot to mention victor is based off this post
During his three years away from Baker Street, Sherlock drops in on an old friend.
If people keep making these kinds of .gifsets (please don’t stop!) I’m going to be very startled if they actually do have Victor in the show and he’s not played by Hiddleston.
